Write it/Forget it

Her hand hovered.
Second thoughts.
On this side
of the door? Loyalty.
But also
fantasies left hidden,
and desires left
unmet.
Beyond it? Betrayal.
But also
a promise of
forbidden fruit:
knowledge and feelings never
before experienced.
She used to wonder
about Eve
and the Garden.
How could she have been so foolish?
So easily tricked?
Now she knew — it was only a trick of timing.
Sooner or later,
Eve would have
bitten that apple anyway —
because she wanted to know
what it tasted like.
She hesitated a few more seconds,
then rang the doorbell.

    I love it! And I agree; Eve would have definitely bitten the apple anyway. Women are awesome knowledge rockstars.

Go ahead -- say something. Anything.
